SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 229
Title: Endangered Languages and Linguistic Infrastructure
Lead Author: Aristar, Anthony
Abstract: It is not just species which are disappearing at an alarming rate: human languages and the cultures for which they are the vehicle are in every bit as much danger of destruction, and of ultimate loss to science. Though increased funding for linguistic fieldwork is important to stem this tide, encouraging the use of data that is freely interchangeable is essential, as is funding the tools, applications and protocols which would make this possible. The field of linguistics and the related field of anthropology stands to benefit enormously from the data management schemes and data manipulation tools provided by an interoperable cyberinfrastructure for linguistics  one which would merge data creation and data management, enable searches across massive amounts of annotated data, and foster the production of high-quality, integrated data by enhancing facilities for data comparison.
